Daniel Baldwin’s wife gives birth to a girl

Daniel BaldwinActor Daniel Baldwin has welcomed a new child with his British model wife Joanne Smith-Baldwin.

Avis Ann Baldwin was born in the early hours at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles - the same hospital where Nicole Richie and Christina Aguilera both gave birth in the last week. Baby Avis weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz.  "Thank god she looks like her mother," Baldwin, 47, joked.

Mother Joanne, 37, is a former model who turned chef.

She said: "I'm ecstatically happy. Daniel wasn't as nervous as me. He's a little used to this sort of thing. I'm glad he's got some experience in this area."

The newborn is Daniel's fourth child and Joanne's first.  "The fourth time's a charm," says Baldwin. "We feel blessed."

The couple met last year during Baldwin's stint in an exclusive drug and alcohol rehab facility in Malibu. At the time, Joanne worked as a chef at the facility. They were married last July 28.

They are already considering how long to wait to expand their family even further.  "Do we have another one right away or do we wait a while?" says Baldwin. "We're still not sure, but practicing is gonna be fun."
